Best Laid Plans, and a Re-run - the Oak Grove 322km report
MO state highway 20... if this view doesn't say "never-gonna-get-there", I don't know what does. For the hearty few, it says "reach..."   Reach we did. Phoning it in?  Yeah... a little.  It's been three weeks since the Oak Grove 322km brevet, and, well... i...

Metroflash Ignita - rhymes with "Dynomit-ah" (...but is it dynamite?)
So, first - allow me the luxury of a handful of asterisks and addenda, caveats, void-where-prohibiteds, and the like: I'm not paid to do any of this, though I'd REALLY like to be.  Hint.  Hint.  Hint These are my opinions  ( opinions, people!) I'm not the b...

When RUSA speaks, riders listen . . . update on reflectivity for 2015
Do I need reflective gear while I'm riding? Lately, the answer is a definitive & resounding "yes."  Yes, even in daylight, you'll often see me donning the reflective vest, or at least something in a hi-viz color.  Think about it... even in the middle of a s...

Don't Call it a Comeback . . .
As each week passes, the shoulder which had been repaired back in July continues to improve.  I've been in the gym consistently, I'm back to riding with ... er, some ... consistency, and I've managed to scrape and crawl my way back into good eating habits. ...

Yes, it's all "social"
   It shouldn't be a mystery at this point that the whole "Milepost 1445" thing is really just a cheat code for me, in the hopes that I can bring more consistent posting, more consistent content across platforms, and more exposure to the joys of commuting a...

UPDATED: Grand what? (a tire report)
UPDATE :     Nov 1st, 2014: I'm filing this under "do better research."  I'd made some assumptions in the post below, and this comment (immediately below) from "PB" corrects those assumptions.  Compass Tires and Grand Bois tires are distinct from one anothe...

Chills --- in this day of digital mastery and musical science, one might be forgiven for assuming most of Elbow's massive sound comes conjured from the soundboard at the hands of a meticulous engineer's watch of the final mixdown... but, they'd be mistaken.  It would be a pure privilege to someday see Elbow perform live in the U.S.; alas, I've missed the appearances they have made thus far, and I'm upset with myself for missing them - they passed through Chicago, only 8 hours away, this last May.  They're back on UK soil now, and sadly I can't swing such a trip.  This, however, stands as confirmation that talent - real, honest talent - and emotion can exist on the live stage with perhaps even more power and presence than their studio work delivers.  Simply magnificent, transcendent, and musically awesome to watch.

Front Bag Testimony: fork rake & trail, headlight brackets, and sepia tone
  For the first time in almost a decade, the Kogs gets something of a make-over - at least as far as the front end is concerned.  I've been sitting on a GB25 handlebag (front) bag for a while now, and I finally decided to give mounting it a shot.  Why the h...

Digging out, but not like you think.
T he first snowfall of the new season came a little early yesterday, capping off - for me - a long, arduous year.  A roller-coaster of a year.  A year of further self-discovery.  I won't get into too much of that here, but, after a month or two of sitting d...
